Father's Day Fishing Vest

This card was made for OWH and is my little fishing vest. I used mesh netting (using the bag found around the Cutie Oranges) to cover the bottom pockets. I did a little stitching around the arms, added some "lures" of colorful brads and frayed embroidery floss, and distressed the edges of the pockets and vest with brown ink. To make the Best Dad button, I mounted the printed image on black card stock and then used scissors to distress and raise the edge to give it a dimensional look. And of course, it was made in the USA.
Here is a link to the Operation Write Home tutorial on YouTube for how to make this vest: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MjSipCeIo9M&feature=plcp
